BlackTrack – Juneteenth Edition (2021)
AUDIENCE:Public Safety, Race and Racism, African-Americans
BlackTrack is a monthly survey of Black American adults by HIT Strategies to track the evolving opinions of Black Americans. The June BlackTrack was conducted between May 28 and June 1, 2021. The recurring monthly national survey of 1,000 Black adults (ages 18+) monitors current Black America’s attitudes on social and political issues and disaggregates the data into demographic groups to understand Black voters’ full diversity. A majority of BlackTrack data is proprietary and available for subscribers.
Noteworthy in the latest Black Track: Black American’s attitudes towards defunding the police have shifted, with a majority of Black Americans (53%) supporting defunding the police. After asking respondents if they agree with “funding community resources, schools, and healthcare while redirecting resources from and overhauling our police departments,” support for the policy increased from 53 percent to 67 percent. The shift represents one of the highest records of Black support for the policy to reallocate police funding.
